wild edible flora of Asturias, Spain

Here is our first little documentary, filmed at Posada del Valle, Asturias, Spain, during the first learning partnership meeting in november 2013.

There was no script, only the idea and a just-do-it-approach. So Cristina and Jörg went into the garden of our venue and filmed everything that didn’t run away quick enough. Afterwards Jörg just glued the snippets together and – voilà!

Jörg could be seen as some kind of wild herb ‘expert’ for he has 10 years of experience in this field by now.

This film is in english, with latin subtitles for the wild plants.
